NEC PC Engine Street fighter 2 Champion Edition

NEC PC Engine Street fighter 2 Champion Edition.  Street Fighter II: Champion Edition (ストリートファイターIIダッシュ -CHAMPION EDITION) is a competitive fighting game released for the arcades by Capcom in 1992. It was the first of several updated versions of the original Street Fighter II: The World Warrior. The main changes consisted of the addition of the Grand Masters (the final four computer-controlled opponents in the single-player mode) as playable characters and mirror matches (same character vs. matches). The fighting techniques of the eight main characters from the original game were also further refined to allowed for more balanced competitive play.  Champion Edition was followed by Street Fighter II′ Turbo: Hyper Fighting, released several months later.

The PC Engine version (published by NEC Home Electronics and developed by Capcom) was released exclusively in Japan on June 12, 1993. The accuracy of this port is high compared to the Super NES port of the The World Warrior, as it featured the barrel breaking bonus stage that was cut out from that version, along with numerous voice clips by the announcer and the elephants in Dhalsim’s stage (these were later integrated in Street Fighter II Turbo for the SNES). This version was released on a 20-Megabit HuCard. A six-button controller was released specifically for the game; when the port is played on a standard two-button controller, the Run button, along with buttons I and II, are used as switchable attack buttons, while the Select button is used to toggle between punches and kicks. The Turbo-Grafx 16 was never thought of as a system that could handle such an impressive game, but amazingly, the TG-16 pulled off the conversion almost flawlessly. In its own right, Street Fighter II: Champion Edition looked like its arcade counterpart, played like its arcade counterpart, and sounded like its arcade counterpart. Sure the six-button pad is a necessity, you can play it with the original controller, but then you wouldn’t experience the full effect. Street Fighter II: Champion Edition for the Turbo-Grafx 16 remains today as one of the best games ever released for the system.

With a six-button controller this game is spot-on control-wise. Playing with the standard two-button controller doesn’t give the full experience as the six-button controller to use. This game was ported with no loss in responsiveness and does not lack in user-friendliness. The game is smooth and fluid, and the special moves can be pulled off with relative ease. Like the arcade their are three different punch and three different kick buttons, all of which are rated as fierce, medium, and weak. The weaker buttons throw slower fireballs and the fierce buttons translate into speedy, damaging attacks.  A Street Fighter II veteran will love the gameplay while even the newbie will be able to pick it up and play without too much trouble.

Classic fighting game for the PC Engine
